Next, we will arrive at the Ethnographical open-air museum. Since its establishment in 1924, the museum has collected 118 historical buildings from different regions of Latvia. On the walking tour through the museum, you will see the diverse architecture of the different areas of Latvia. There are permanent exhibitions – household and working tools, interior furnishings – which characterize the period and the district.
The last part of the tour is in Jurmala. It is an iconic resort on the Baltic sea coast. The small but very charming city today is a satellite of Riga. The Nobel and wealthy people from Latvia and neighboring countries used it as a summer vacation spot. You will see here many luxury villas belonging to celebrities.
We will take a promenade on Jomas street to the famous Dzintari concert hall. In the summertime, Jurmala hosts the show of local and foreign music stars. We will continue to the beach where you can see kilometers of sand and smell the breeze of Baltic see.
To crown the day tour in Riga, you can have a coffee with ice cream, and return to Riga.
